Gareth Morgan’s Lexis is the culmination of nearly 50 years of Greek pedagogy at the University of Texas at Austin, updated for the 21st century. It applies principles of the inductive reading approach both to syntax and to morphology such that students predict and deconstruct final forms with far less reliance on prescribed charts traditionally requisite for reading Greek. As a result, students read a range of ancient Greek including and beyond the traditional canon of classical Attic prose authors in their first year. To quote Stanley Lombardo, a student of Gareth Morgan’s original Lexis, “this stuff really works.”
“A Guide to Using Gareth Morgan’s Lexis” is available by request. It includes a discussion of the book’s pedagogy, suggested schedules for regular track and intensive courses, detailed lesson plans, keys to exercises, and sample assessment exercises (e.g. quizzes and exams).
